Getz’s Top 30 Records of 2018

30. Beach House - 7: While Beach House will probably never be able to replicate the moment where I heard “Myth” for the first time (can any artist replicate a paradigm altering moment, though?), 7 is a nice mix of quiet tunes that sometimes veer from dreamy to foreboding, as the album’s ...

Joshua Powell – PSYCHO/TROPIC
